  KANGDA - VIDYESWARI MANDIR

The antiquity of Vidyeswari mandir is shrouded in mystery, but sthalagnas and certain tantric texts claim it to be one of the sakti-Peethas where Mother Sati's head fell when Mahavishnu's Sudarshan chakra split the Sati's corpse borne on the shoulders of Maheswar. She is also popular as Nagarkoti Devi in these parts. As the earth quate destroyed and swallowed its splendour its a new mandir with latest architectural style came into being in 1905 under the stewardship of devout Trust board members, who realised its former renown and spiritual eminence. Modernity has enhance and resorted its bygone reputation.

The idol of the Mother Vidhyeswari is an excellent specimen of superb craftsmanship and it is so beautified with dazzling diamond jewels that a mere single sight joins the palms of the beholders in veneration. A sparkling golden umbrella seen over the head is heightening the splendour of the Mother and enthralls the devotees, as such and it detains them longer. There is set up an yantra called Vege yantra just in front of the idol and it bears potent bijaksheras. And worship offered to it is quite efficacious, says the priest Nithyanaimithika puja is offered to both the icon and yantra with rituals due. Knowledge seeking devotees throng this mandir and get their aspirations fulfilled with Mother's abundant grace. The huge tank located nearby serves the temple and visitors in several ways. Strangely enough, many yupasthambas are seen here indicating thereby the influence of Jainism that flourished once in the dim past.

It is near Kangda station on Patankot and Yogindra Nagar broadguage line, accessible by bus even.
